Tinycards

Hi Duolingo, I've been enjoying the Tinycards feature and learning quite a lot, and I have an improvement to suggest. The Sign Language Alphabet makes learning possible by providing a picture next to every letter, which is a must for visual learners. However when you study "Capitals of the World" all you get is boring words that get matched with other boring words: Mexico with Mexico City, etc. I think it would make learning so much easier if you had a picture of the country--say, a black-and-white map of the world with the country highlighted in yellow--along with the words. Then there would be a visual way to distinguish. Personally, I only memorize that Italy is Italy because it looks like a boot, and Chile is Chile because it's long and thin like a chili pepper, etc. This would have the added bonus of teaching the countries' positions on the map. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Hi! Thanks for the suggestion! Did you know you can create your own Tinycards decks? In fact, the vast majority of decks there are user-created. Give it a try and let us know if you end up creating your own deck =]
